the National Incident Management System (NIMS)
These training guidelines specify certain courses for all critical incident management resources, including volunteers. Several of the specified programs (Introduction to the National Incident Management System, Introduction to the Incident Command System, etc.) are available at no charge online at: http://training.fema.gov/IS/crslist.asp.
Advanced level ICS courses (ICS-300 and ICS-400) are not available as online programs at this time. Classroom training for these programs is being conducted by a number of state, organizational and private contractors.
NIMS and ICS Training
Command School TTX does provide training, as taught by DHS, for these NIMS-specified courses:
- IS-700… Introduction to the National Incident Management System

- ICS-200… Basic Incident Command System
- ICS-300… Intermediate Incident Command System
- ICS-400… Advanced Incident Command System

A primary reason that Customers choose Command School TTX to instruct ICS-300 and ICS-400 is that a tabletop exercise can be incorporated into the training using the Command School TTX diorama.
